Fit Kids of Arizona includes the clinical services as well as community services to help children and their families live healthy lifestyles. The Fit Kids clinical team is made up of medical, nutritional, fitness and behavioral experts who work on an individual basis with children and their families. The goal is to identify health concerns and problem areas and then guide the participant and family members in setting goals for improvement. Learn more about our clinical programs .

There is not one perfect weight for every person. It is not the goal of Fit Kids of Arizona to make every child conform to certain weight limits. However, sometimes too much weight can lead to health problems including diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, fat in the liver, and bone and joint problems. Fit Kids of Arizona can help you to prevent or reduce these problems, leading to a long, healthy, and happy life for your child.

Our community programs range from public health events to school-based health education to research projects. Learn more about our community programs .
